Browns' Morgan Burnett: Heading to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett will sign a contract with the Browns on Friday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Burnett was granted his release from the Steelers on Monday after a disappointing 2018 in which he totaled only 30 tackles in 11 games. The 30-year-old should compete for the starting role at strong safety with new addition Eric Murray, as 2018 starter Jabrill Peppers was sent to the Giants in the trade for Odell Beckham (quadriceps) in March.

Morgan Burnett: Release made official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers have released Burnett.

Burnett fell off the IDP radar last season, logging just 30 total tackles in 11 games in his first and only season with the Steelers. Whether the 30-year-old resurfaces on the fantasy radar in 2019 depends on where he ends up, but it seems unlikely he'll approach the statistical heights he reached during his peak years as a Green Bay Packer.

Steelers' Morgan Burnett: Soon to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers informed Burnett he will be released before Apr. 1, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Pittsburgh planned to release the 30-year-old safety this past Wednesday but will wait another week because of an accounting issue. Regardless of when it happens, Burnett figures to have trouble finding a starting job on the open market, as he hasn't played a 16-game season since 2012 and struggled in coverage the past couple years. It wasn't so long ago that Burnett was the top tackle compiler among all defensive backs, averaging 7.6 per game in 60 appearances from 2011 to 2014.

Steelers' Morgan Burnett: Asks out of Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett reportedly would like to be released by the Steelers to pursue a more traditional safety role elsewhere, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Burnett had 30 tackles in 11 games during his first season with the Steelers, and was overtaken for snaps at strong safety by rookie Terrell Edmunds. The veteran then served in a hybrid safety/linebacker role, but apparently wants to play the more traditional position. Burnett carries about a $6.5 million cap hit for next season, and could be released with approximately $2.8 million in dead cap.

Steelers' Morgan Burnett: Disappointing season with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett had three tackles (all solo) during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

After eight years with Green Bay in which he averaged over 87 tackles per season Burnett struggled in his first season with Pittsburgh, finishing the 2018 season with 30 tackles in 11 games. Outplayed by rookie Terrell Edmunds, Burnett still has two years remaining on his current contract and will likely return in 2019 to provide depth in the Pittsburgh secondary.
